senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin as well as litigator and author and harvard law professor alan dirs witsz. with a wounded, sedated and restrained and unmirandized terror suspect. professor, that has to raise just inord nant number of questions. what are your thoughts? >> as soon as a lawyer is appointed the law might begin to challenge that. you may say what's the harm, they have a videotape of him putting the bomb down, they have a statement he made or his co-defendant, his brother, made to the people who hijacked. but it may make a lot of difference. because in order to get the death penalty, they have to prove that he comes within the federal terrorism statute. and that requires very specific kinds of intentions behind the bombing. and if they get the evidence of those intentions during this interrogation even if it's by a nod or something handwritten, the federal court in boston which comprised of a lot of very good judges who really, really operate by the letter of the law may well exclude those statements made without a miranda warning or made while he's not really competent b
, hakeem jeffreys from democrat from new york who voted against the bill. we asked republican fess we could speak with any republican who voted for the bill and we're told not one of them was available. congressman jeffreys, i will begin with you and ask you. you were in the minority of people. only 41 people voted against the bill. why did you vote against the bill? >> sequestration is a random policy bad for the economy and we need to do away with it completely. what occurred today is an example of choosing a limited affluent group of americans to rescue from sequestration, while leaving the most vulnerable amongst us. head start children, seniors who receive meals on wheels. public housing residents. expectant mothers who rely on government nutritional programs. long-term unemployed who experienced the benefits cut. we left them on the battlefield to suffer continuously from sequestration but rescue affluent business travellers. >> you did not want to break those two groups of people apart. >> in my view, we shouldn't break those groups apart. if we intervene in any way, the responsible
of the best things that ever happened to me was receiving your book on jeffrey mcdonald to review from "the wall street journal." it opened my eyes to how counternarcotics have a taxonomy, how you can follow them from case to case. i don't know if you are still pursuing that case. see i am pursuing it in the sense that my publishers have asked me to do another edition of the book, so i am rewriting parts of the book and then there is an edition based on a recent hearing in north carolina. about the case, so that has been added to the mix. >> so i guess the answer is yes, i'm sorry. >> i'm glad to hear that. although i think your first edition of it really says everything there is that i can think of to say. they sit way you have, the police have a choice. they can either look for an intruder which is a lot of work or they can look at the one surviving family member, indyk him and convict him which is a much easier choice. i think we see this in the amanda knox case. we see this in the sam shepard case. there is a tendency and i don't know if you agree, but with police to basically take the
thing happen with the broader legalization of marijuana. >> let me bring in jeffrey cuban on this. a lot of people make the case on same-sex marriage and attitudes change, and the states started changing as well. there have been a number of of states, i think nine now, that allow same-sex marriage. and yet there is this wisdom out there that drugs are different, that marijuana is different. that this maybe isn't a civil rights issue that other people think it is. do you see this as being apples and oranges? >> there is a parallel but also an important difference. with same-sex marriage, the federal government cannot and does not prohibit states from allowing same-sex marriage. there's a certain act which limits certain benefits for gay couples who are married, but they don't prohibit it. what makes marijuana different and unpredictable how it will work, is that even though washington and colorado have voted to legalize marijuana, it is still a federal crime to possess marijuana. and how federal and state law interacts is the big question that's unresolved at this point. >> so help me ans
of mass destruction rulgting in death. let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. jeffrey, what happens next? >> what happens next is that the case will be presented to a grand jury. prosecutors will begin presenting evidence, leading to an indictment. i think the process is going to slow down a great deal. remember, this crime was only a week ago. the government is going to have to assemble a lot of scientific evidence trying to tie material that could be connected to the defendant, to the bomb itself. this is complicated stuff. i think it's going to be months in the grand jury until a final indictment is ready to be presented probably. and then at that point the case will be presented to a trial judge, and there will be motions and then a trial. >> he now has a lawyer, a public defender, was at the bedside when the federal magistrate read to him these charges. so presumably he was told he has the right to remain silent. what do you expect is going to happen? what will this public defender based on all of your experience, jeff? >> well, this is a pretty easy call. certain
of the year. joining me now is jeffrey rose, a law professor and legal affairs editor. jeffrey, thank you for coming on the show. >> it's good to be back. >> let me ask you, were you surprised by these comments by justice o'connor? >> i have to say that i was surprised and economy also impressed. i interviewed justice o'connor during the summer of 2011 and she said it wasn't the end of the world. she said, forget about it. it's over. the tone of these comments is very different. it suggests a justice who has been thinking hard about whether it was wise for the court to intervene, has thought seriously about the effects of the decision and i think she gets huge credit for grappling with an important part of her legacy and thought in retrospect the supreme court made a mistake by getting involved in the first place. >> what was the change from 2011 until now? you think it was just reflection or do you think -- let me ask you this. americans seem to feel that justices are partisan. when asked in 2012, 17% said the decision would be based on legal merits but 75% said that it would be based on

, some kind of action, remains strong, jeffrey goldberg writes in "the atlantic" if it is proved to a certainty that assad is trying to kill his people with chemical weapons, then obama may have no choice but to act. not only because he's put the country's credibility on the line. but also because the alternative, allowing human beings to be murdered by a monstrous regime, using the world's most devilish weapons when he has the power to stop it is not a moral option for a moral man. joining me is glen thrush, the "huffington post" political editor and white house correspondent, sam stein, former director of the domestic policy council under president obama, melanie barnes and "washington post" columnist and msnbc political analyst, ezra klein and ayman mohyeldin, msnbc correspondent. i want to go to you, ayman, the president, they keep doubling down on the terms, credible and corroborative. needing more evidence as to whether assad is using chemical weapons. how much do you think the international community and specifically syrians are taking stock in this notion that the white h
